The music in Armed with wings: Rearmed.

by Domideus Thu Dec 29, 2016 7:08 am

If you are a TLDR kind of person skip to the blue text for the discussion question.

While playing through armed with wings i enjoyed the gameplay and levels. However as a student learning music theory and atmosphere composing i find the music rather obtuse. If i had a way of describing it i would say it has too much of a cutoff and not enough flow. The chirps of the techno esc music do not match up with the agressive and well timed movement of your character. For boss fights id suggest something like organs. while on the title screen i would use piano as a "calm before the storm" atmosphere. And normal combat should use a more agressive techno track of the two.

Im not saying the music is bad, in fact i quite enjoy the music of the game. However I personally feel it doesnt fit the gameplay.

This makes me wana ask a few questions to those who read.
Do you feel the music is out of place?
If so what do you feel should replace it?
If not Tell me why you think so.

Topic moved to Rearmed Discussion. Thanks for the feedback, I'll consider adjusting the music further.

One thing I liked about AwW music was that it used both genres of more orchestrated and more techno. I think AwW's shift from sometimes organic in past games to almost totally non-organic in Rearmed(which is how I would phrase what you're describing) is a point you are right about, and I'd like to hear more piano and orchestral elements in the soundtrack as well in certain places, as well as pull back on overt techno. I still love Awaken, though.
